Fate/Apocrypha Episode 4
Price of Life, Redemption of Death
Spartacus continues his advance on the Yggdmillenia castle, with Achilles and Atalanta keeping a close eye on him. The Black Faction servants then engage Spartacus and are able to immobilize him, with Darnic planning to try and turn him their side. Siegfried and Frankenstein’s monster are sent to attack Achilles and Atalanta, but Achilles is easy able to hold the both of them off by himself. Believing that Siegried is prolonging fight because he is enjoying the battle, Gordes impulsively uses a Command Spell to force Siegfried to use his Noble Phantasm Balmung, but is forced by Darnic to use a second Command Spell to cancel the order. Chiron then joins the battle, forcing Achilles and Atalanta to withdraw. During the confusion of the battle, Astolfo takes the chance to smuggle the Homunculus out of the castle, but they are spotted and Gordes and Siegfried are sent to catch them. Meanwhile, Jeanne is also in the forest investigating the aftermath of the battle, noting how the presence of the Red Masters is uncharacteristically weak and that something is wrong with this war. Gordes then catches the Homunculus and inadvertently kills him when he tries to defend himself. Siegried knocks out Gordes and removes his own heart to give to the Homunculus, saving his life. Before fading away, Siegried reveals that his greatest wish was to help somebody of his own volition rather than being told to, and he does not regret his sacrifice. Jeanne arrives and promises to Siegfried that she will protect the Homunculus.
